In the light of recent discussions about firewire / DMA hacks, we would
like to throw in some of the results of our past research on this topic
(done mainly by Peter Panholzer) in the form of a short whitepaper. In
this paper, we demonstrate that the firewire unlock attack (as
implemented in Adam Boileau┬┤s winlockpwn) can be used against Windows

The paper is available at:
